The History of Marklin (Marklin)


Marklin (Maerklin) presents the first system railroad: A windup locomotive with cars and an expandable track system.

Around 1900

On the basis of the Marklin (Maerklin) scales an international standard for the gauges and scales 0, I, II and III of that time were adopted.


With the new 20 volt system, the electric trains previously operated with standard household current are now safe for children.


With the "halving" of 0 Scale to H0 (half of zero), Marklin (Maerklin) expands the world of model railroading: The compact dimensions allow complete layouts as table top railroads. In addition, the three-rail track system makes for trouble-free setup and reliable operation.


The "perfect circuit" enables remote controlled direction reversing on Marklin (Maerklin) AC systems - a big step towards prototypical model railroad operation.


The first fully functional catenary expands operating enjoyment to include an additional, independently controlled track circuit.


Marklin (Maerklin)'s standard H0 coupler couples gently and reliably and keeps a train composition together. It is adopted by other manufacturers and later becomes NEM Standard 360.


Thanks to a realistic articulated frame, the new Marklin (Maerklin) CCS 800 Crocodile can also negotiate sharp curves.


Up to now the solid third rail has lain on top of the ties; now it is placed under the roadbed and only stud contacts stick up through the ties. This makes the three-rail track visually more acceptable to model railroaders and becomes a synonym for the Marklin (Maerklin) system.


The standard coupler is further developed into the RELEX coupler. It allows advance uncoupling over a new uncoupler track.


The TELEX coupler for switch engines takes couplers a step further. It enables remote controlled uncoupling anywhere on the layout.


The first sound effects circuit - a horn that can be retrofitted into locomotives - ends the silence of the latter.


With the K Track system Marklin (Maerklin) presents a track system without a roadbed. With flex track, large radius curves and turnouts it is quite suitable for an experienced model railroader's layout.


The new Marklin (Maerklin) 1 Gauge introduces a renaissance of the large gauge. A previously unknown level of detailing on regular production Marklin (Maerklin) models appeals to even the most demanding model railroaders.


The presentation of mini-club, the smallest mass produced electric train system in the world.


The time is past for the typical "goat's jump". Direction reversing for locomotives is now being done by an electronic circuit.


Marklin (Maerklin) Digital catapults model railroading directly into the electronic age. The digital signal processing - with electronic receiver circuits in each locomotive - makes it possible to have independent, multi-train operation.


The Marklin (Maerklin) Club of North America is established by Marklin (Maerklin), Inc.


The close coupler completes the visual appearance of the cars and locomotives by enabling prototypically close coupled train compositions. It is also compatible with the standard coupler.


A model highlight is the H0 Swedish train, constructed with real wood like the prototype. The bodies for the locomotive and cars are covered with wood panels. Super fine details demonstrate the high level of modeling technology.


The new digitally controlled, high-efficiency propulsion system allows you to set the maximum speed as well as the acceleration and braking delay for each locomotive as it would be for that unit's prototype.


With DELTA Marklin (Maerklin) brings out a multi-train system for small to medium size layouts - the simple entry into digital.


The Marklin (Maerklin) Insider Club is established. Model railroaders with a strong commitment to their hobby gain access to still more information and to special, exclusive models.


With MAXI, the toy and adventure railroad for indoors and outdoors, Marklin (Maerklin) brings the art of sheet metal toys back to life. The sturdy construction and the large scale of 1 Gauge also make Maxi the ideal garden railway - fully compatible with the standard 1 Gauge equipment.


The new C Track system combines the operational advantages of the three rail track with extremely easy "click" assembly, prototypical appearance, and modular setup.


Marklin (Maerklin) Digital is expanded further. A signal module and controllable locomotive functions bring new prototypical functions to the operation of a layout.


For the 25th anniversary of mini-club Marlin builds a steam locomotive with a body of pure 18 carat gold. This special, exclusive model is enthusiastically accepted by Z Gauge fans.


A high point of the reproduction series is the carriage that comes about in cooperation with Heidi Ott (dolls), Hutschenreuther (porcelain horses) and Marklin (Maerklin) (carriage).


A new concept for starter sets with track extension sets and a premium digital starter set make it even more appealing to enter the world of model railroading.


Marklin (Maerklin) celebrates its 140th anniversary with a model of the Stork's Leg, the first Marklin (Maerklin) locomotive.


Marklin (Maerklin) keeps their leadership in the European Model trains industry as the number 1 Manufacturer in the World. The new millennium has brought many improvements including the new Digital System, new FMX decoders and locomotives that automatically send back information to the Central units for identification and functions available to it as well as a large improvement on new locomotives designs and schemes.

The acquisition of Trix Minitrix is a total success and Marklin is also taking a predominant position on the Market for DC ( 2 rail operation) and N scale model trains.

C track is now the standard and has replaced completely the old M metal track and it is also available for DC operation under Trix box.

Marklin Inc. abandons the USA market passing its Distribution to a train Distributor located in Wisconsin 

2009 February

Marklin GmbH files for bankruptcy after inability to pay a 50 million Euros loan and deny from Banks to renew their credit lines based on "too often and too many changes on the high management and too much money paid to Consultants"

Marklin 60213 Central Station Digital Control new for 2008


Marklin has sent us this information to upgrade your Central Stations.

Dear Madam/Sir:

The new update to Version 3.6.0 for the 60213 to 60215 Central Stations will be available shortly. This new software version represents an important step with regard to future updates. We therefore want to inform you in the following newsletter about these implications.

One of the characteristics most appreciated by our customers about the current generation of Central Stations is the constant stream of updates being offered that can be used to install supplements and additional possibilities into the Central Stations. In the past, these updates went out to the customers without explanations and without possibilities explained for impact on the operation of trains. The new behavior by the Central Station resulting from these updates could lead to irritation on the part of the customers and malfunction of the controller.

We have therefore decided to change completely the process for the update and to combine it with a manageable menu guide. This new update 3.6.0 must be carried out so that this type of update is capable of running in the future on the 60213 to 60215 Central Station. The procedure for this differs from earlier procedures. We therefore request that you do not engage in any experiments and that you adhere strictly to the following steps.

You need a USB stick for this update and it must have a memory capacity of 8 GB. For the sake of safety store existing important data on it and if necessary on a suitable device (example: personal computer).

Go to the M?rklin Web page under

and load the following files from the Web page into the main directory on this USB stick:


Important: Please download these files first when there is a note on the Web page about this new update. Older versions of these files naturally do not generate the following procedure.

Tip: Plug the USB stick into an available USB socket on your personal computer for this transfer. The personal computer must be connected to the Internet. Go to the Web page mentioned above. Position the cursor on the desired file and press the right mouse button. A selection menu will open up in which you will select the sub-item "Save as ?".In the new "Save" window that now opens up select the USB stick as the save location and activate this selection. Carry out this procedure for both files, one after the other.

Now plug this USB stick into the USB socket on the 60213 ? 60215Central Station that is ready for operation. Select the menu "Setup" there and the button "Update program". After the update, the Central Station will be started again and will activate the new update process.

Important: A Central Station can also continue to be brought to the latest level of software with future updates by means of your data network.

The new update process will already be applied in the next step. The menu item "Setup" has already changed as follows:
Under "Update" you can now select whether the update is to be done by means of the USB stick or by means of your data network. A new display will open up with both methods. This display will tell you when new update packets are available. You can also have additional information displayed for each packet.

Clicking on the "Start" button will activate the update. Different information about the status of the update will appear during the update. It is not possible to transfer only partial packets.

After a successful update, please click on the button "Further". If you click on the "x" or the check mark, then the update has not been transferred completely. If you try to do the update again, the program will then continue from this point. You have to click on "Further" to have the changes take place and be available after restarting the Central Station.

A successful update is represented in two ways. The previous new update packets are represented in gray instead of black with one method. Also, "Your system is current" can be read in the upper status line.

We would be happy to answer questions about this procedure at our dealer hotline +49 7161 608 333.

Sincerely yours,

Gebr. M?rklin & Cie GmbH

General Information For The Hookup And Operation Of Marklin Model Railroads
Marklin products adhere to the European safety regulations (EU standards) for toys. Achieving the greatest possible safety in practice requires, however, that the individual products are used in accordance with regulations. In the instructions accompanying the products, directions are therefore given for their correct hookup and operation which are to be followed at all times. It is recommended that parents sit down and go through the instructions with their children before the trains are operated for the first time. This will provide safety and many years of enjoyment in the use of the model railroad.
Several important points of general significance are given on this page.
Electrical Equipment for Building a Layout.
All Marklin products intended for electrical/electronic operation may by used only with Marklin transformers or low voltage, plug-in power packs designed for this purpose.
Hookup of Track Layouts
Every electrical conductor has an electrical resistance. Naturally, this is also true for model railroad track, especially for the rail joint or the electrical connection between two sections of model railroad track. To minimize the drop in voltage that results from this, we recommend that additional voltage connections be made every 2?3 meters or about 6-9 feet (depending on how clean or corroded the rail joints in the track are) using a feeder track or other feeder connection, to enable trouble-free operation and a safe way to shut off power in the event of excess current (example: short circuits from derailments).
Please note:
The transformer may be operated only with alternating current. Operation in damp or wet areas or outdoors is not permitted. When Marklin transformers are properly used, it is virtually impossible to have damage due to overloads.
In the event of a short circuit the built-in thermal switch shuts off the current automatically. We recommend that you set the speed control knob to "0" and that you wait about one minute. After the cause of the short circuit has been corrected, you will then be able to continue operation.
If the transformer should shut off several times during operation without the presence of a short circuit, then it is probably overloaded by having too many electric accessories (such as turnouts, signals, etc.) connected to it. In this instance you must connect up a second or third transformers according to the instructions included with these units and divide the users into several power circuits. These power circuits must not be connected to each other in parallel under any circumstances.
Transformers should be examined regularly for possible damage (example: to the power cord, plug or housing). Damaged transformers must not be used.
Installation of Digital Equipment
Because of the many possibilities for control with Marklin Digital, it is recommended that on very large layouts the control components be installed at various points around the layout. The 6038 and 6039 adapter cables enable you to install individual components in a decentralized manner.
Please note:
The sum of all distances between the individual components may be a maximum of six meters or 20 feet.
Interference Suppression on Model Railroad Layouts
All Marklin products as delivered from the factory meet the current EU regulations for preventing interference with radio and television reception. Worn out parts and/or faulty maintenance of our products as well as operation of the latter in a manner other than that indicated in the operating instructions can lead to increased interference with radio and television reception.
In addition to this general information, please follow the instructions included with individual Marklin products to maintain their operating reliability


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Marklin (or Maerklin) is a German toy company, founded in 1859. Although it originally specialized in doll house accessories, today it is best known for model railways and technical toys. In some parts of Germany, the company's name is almost synonymous with model railroads. Recently, the third game in the Ticket to Ride board game series was named in their honor.


Marklin released its first wind-up train with cars that ran on expandable track in 1891, noting that railroad toys had the potential to follow the common practice of doll houses, in which the initial purchase would be enhanced and expanded with more accessories for years after the initial purchase. To this end, Marklin offered additional rolling stock and track with which to expand its boxed sets.

Marklin is responsible for the creation of virtually every popular model railroad gauge or scale, with only noteworthy exceptions being N scale and Wide gauge. In 1891, Marklin defined gauges 1-5 as standards for toy trains and presented them at the Leipzig Toy Fair. They soon became international standards. Marklin followed with O gauge (by some accounts as early as 1895 or as late as 1901), H0 scale in 1935, and the diminutive Z scale in 1972 ? this is the smallest commercially available scale, 1:220.

Today, Marklin manufactures and markets trains and accessories in Gauge 1, H0 scale, and Z scale. In 1994 Marklin acquired a Nuremberg based model train manufacturer Trix. Today Trix is another brand of Marklin Holding and covers N-scale and DC operated HO scale. Marklin's older trains are considered highly collectible today, and Marklin's current offerings enjoy premium status among hobbyists.

Although Marklin is best known for its trains, from 1914 to 1999, the company produced mechanical construction sets similar to Meccano and Erector. Between 1967 and 1982, the company produced a slot car system called Marklin Sprint. Marklin also produced numerous other toys over the years, including lithographed tinplate toy automobiles and boats.

On 11th May 2006, the company, which had until then been owned by the three families Marklin, Friz and Safft, was sold to the British investment group Kingsbridge Capital, with the support of the employees. The new shareholders plan to restructure the company and make it profitable again. The purchase price was approximately $38 million. At the time, Marklin had approximately $70.5 million in debt, as a result of several years of slumping sales.

The Marklin System

The so-called Marklin system is Marklin's technique of using a third rail concealed in the roadbed with only small studs protruding through the ties of the track. The two outer rails are connected electrically. This provides the simplified wiring enjoyed by larger gauges ? such as reverse loops ? without seriously detracting from the realism of the track because only two of the rails are visible. Because the two outer rails are not electrically isolated from each other, however, some do not consider Marklin's system to be a true three-rail system.

The Marklin system has some incompatibility with other manufacturers' H0 trains. Because the wheels on Marklin's cars are not insulated, it causes shorts if its cars are used on other manufacturers' H0 track without modification. Additionally, for many years Marklin was the only brand that used AC for its H0 scale trains, although recently also Roco has started producing trains for the Marklin system. Some people convert Marklin locomotives to DC for use on DC layouts, and Marklin has begun offering a line of DC locomotives as well, first under the name of HAMO and, after buying Trix under that name.

Marklin System is the brand name for Marklin new version of proprietary Marklin Digital train control system for H0-scale and 1-scale model trains introduced in 2004. Like Marklin Digital it is used for controlling trains and accessories digitally. The difference is that it has more available addresses, programmable decoders and a feedback-function from the mfx-decoders that helps the control unit identify the locomotives.

Marklin Digital

Marklin was among the first model railway companies to introduce a digital train control system. The he Marklin Digital system was introduced in 1984 and jointly developed with Motorola. However, Marklin's system is not compatible with DCC (Digital Command Control), which was developed by a number of different people and companies and standardized by the NMRA (National Model Railroad association) in the 1990s. Marklin now also offers DCC powered locomotives, however.

Products and Collectables

Over the years, the Marklin marquee became valuable to model train collectors, some of the very early models fetching impressive prices on auction. In January 2005, the Marklin museum in G?ppingen, Germany, was burglarized and more than 100 pieces, with an estimated value of more than 1 million Euros, were stolen. The items, which included one-of-a-kind prototypes along with pieces that dated back to 1891, were recovered in March 2005.

The range of products is extensive, and collectors also pay attention to the packaging that were used for the products.

The Marklin toy company systematically included a print run number on almost all their printed material, including the boxes in which their products shipped. These print run numbers indicate the printer and also the month and year of printing. This is very useful for dating an item that is known to be associated with some printed material. The second group of digits indicates the catalogue number. The last set of numeric digits in the print run number indicates the month and year that the item was printed. The last group of letters identifies the printer.
